The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz and right-handed pitcher Ray Black from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for infielder Mauricio Dubon. The announcement was made by President of Baseball Operations and General Manager David Stearns.

“We are pleased to add a veteran presence in Drew Pomeranz and a high-velocity arm in Ray Black to the organization,” said Stearns.

Pomeranz owns a career record of 46-57 with a 4.09 ERA and 3 saves in 217 games / 139 starts in the majors with Colorado (2011-13), Oakland (2014-15), San Diego (2016), Boston (2016-18) and San Francisco (2019). He was a 17-game winner (17-6) with the Red Sox in 2017, posting a 3.32 ERA in 32 starts.

Black, 29, has spent most of the season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he went 1-0 with a 5.16 ERA and 1 save in 23 games / 1 start (22.2ip, 19h, 13r, 13er, 13bb, 36k, 4hr, .229ba). Selected by San Francisco in the seventh round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, Black has made 28 appearances, all in relief, with the Giants (26g in 2018 and 2g in 2019).
